Tickets for our cinema and events

Our art galleries are free to visit throughout the year.

Tickets are required for our cinema screenings and some events. All profits from our ticket sales raise money to fund local community projects, including lunches during the school holidays for families who receive free school meals. Proceeds also help us to show free exhibitions of award winning artists.

You can book tickets for our cinema and events online, in person or over the phone.
